Today I have a review of one of the goodies that I was gifted for my birthday last month – the Day Pack gift set from Matter Company. (Thanks again R!)
But first, a little bit about the company since they are Canadian (yay!), based in Toronto (info in italics is taken from their website):
At Matter Company, we embrace a holistic approach to personal care which recognizes the relationship between our natural environment and our physical and emotional well being. […]
A self-professed plant lover, Toronto-based Denise Williams founded Matter Company, a luxe range of all-natural skincare products, in 1996.
Their products are herbal, organic, cruelty-free, paraben free, gmo free, AND made in Canada.
The Day Pack gift set is a small little kit that contains three products: the All-Heal Salve, the Heat Rub and a Lip Balm – the perfect size for travelling.
Hardcore ointment. Natural protection from the wear & tear of the elements. Soothes, smooths, & revitalizes irritated skin. For cuts & scrapes, cracked heels, even doggie paws.
Everyone needs to own one of these salves. Seriously. The Mr. had a skin irritation on his arm – possibly contact dermatitis or something similar – and since he started using this salve, it has started to heal.
Ingredients: olea europaea (olive oil), symphytum officinale (comfrey) leaf, articum lapa (burdock) root, stellaria media (chickweed) oil, plantago major (plantain) leaf, matricaria chamomilla (chamomile) flower, cera alba (beeswax), tocopherol (vitamin) e, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) and lavandula officinalis (lavender) essential oils
Soothes & revitalizes tired muscles. Relaxing massage ointment. After-sports rub. Pressure points. Chest rub.
This stuff is so good on sore muscles. And it doesn’t have that terrible stench that a lot of heat rubs have. And it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
Ingredients: mustard oil, cayenne pepper, ginger root, mustard seeds, beeswax, eucalyptus, cayenne, camphor, peppermint, rosemary and thymol essential oils
Natural protection from the elements. Soothes & softens dry chapped lips.
As a lip balm addict, you know that I love this. I especially love that this can be attached to my key ring, so I always have a lip balm with me.
Ingredients: soya bean oil, shea butter, comfrey leaf, echinacea root, beeswax, vitamin e, peppermint, and orange essential oils
Have you tried anything from Matter Company? I was so excited when I found out that they were Canadian!
